Singer Featherweight Sewing Machine, Model 221

Black vintage Singer Featherweight Sewing Machine, Model 221.
Comes in its original case with 2 bobbins, 3 different feet, Oil, original instruction manual and a pedal motor controller.
The Serial # is AE209102, the machine was manufactured in 1936.
It is in very good condition including the gold logo. I have tested the machine and it seems to work OK, but of course I have little experiance with sewing machines. If you are planning on using this machine, the belt should be replaced as it is worned out.
